Billy Moyer Sweeps UMP/MARS Challenge; Heads to Land of Lincoln!
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) "Mr. Smooth" Billy Moyer claimed his
eighteenth and nineteenth feature wins of the 2010 racing season over
the August 27-28 weekend by sweeping a pair of MARS DIRTcar Series and
UMP DIRTcar Series co-sanctioned showdowns! On Friday night, the Paducah
International Raceway in Paducah, Kentucky played host to the annual
running of the 'World 50.' Billy won his heat race in preliminary action
and later led flag-to-flag in the A-Main. After the completion of fifty
green flag racing laps, Billy was awarded the $5,000 top prize for defeating
Will Vaught, Jason Feger, Terry English, and Dennis Erb.
Night two of the MARS/UMP Challenge took place on Saturday evening
at the I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri. Billy ran second in his heat
race, but once again had the car to beat in the feature event. The Batesville,
Arkansas native recorded the $5,000 win over Shannon Babb, Jeremy Payne,
Dennis Erb, and Brian Shirley. Complete results from both MARS/UMP Challenge
programs can be located online at www.marsracingseries.com.
"It has been an excellent year so far for us, but trust me, we
are still hungry for more," pointed out Moyer this week. "After
a couple of disappointing weekends at Florence and Batesville, it was
good to bounce back the way we did at Paducah and Pevely this past weekend.
Hopefully, we are back on our game and I look forward to racing up in
Illinois this weekend at Peoria and Fairbury!"
A tripleheader in the Land of Lincoln will greet the #21 team over
the ultra-busy Labor Day holiday weekend. The Peoria Speedway in Peoria,
Illinois will kick things off tonight, September 2 with a $5,000 to
win UMP DIRTcar Series show. On Friday and Saturday, September 3-4,
the action will quickly turn to the Fairbury American Legion Speedway
in Fairbury, Illinois. The 'Prairie Dirt Shootout' will pay $5,000 to
the winner on Friday night at F.A.L.S., while the historic 'Prairie
Dirt Classic' will wrap up the weekend on Saturday evening with a $10,000
top prize. Additional information on these three events can be located
